This football record impossible to shatter



NEW YORK – Football World Cup 2014 is just month away now and hopefully footballers break many records, but one record may be impossible to broke.

The biggest score line in the history of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers – and indeed in the history of international football – was recorded on 11 April 2001, when Australia beat American Samoa 31-0.

This legendary match also brought global renown for Archie Thompson, whose 13-goal haul set a new world record, which stands to this day, for an individual player in a single international match.

And though the defeat earned American Samoa ignominy, so inspiring has their subsequent recovery been that it is now the subject of an acclaimed documentary, ‘Next Goal Wins’, showing across the world.
